Hi I'm Steve

I'm a software engineer, a runner, and a home renovator. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the single father of four terrific children. One is married, one is engaged, and three of them go to college in three different states, hundreds of miles from each other, and hundreds of miles from me. That makes me an empty-nester, at least until Christmas or summer breaks. Besides being a software engineer, which I love, I keep myself busy with home renovation projects, yard work, and church service. I like to stay in shape by running 4 miles every-other day, and doing P90X workouts on the off days. I eat healthy most of the time, but can't resist the occasional chocolate dessert or dutch cheese. I love to visit family and friends, often out-of-state, and love it when they visit me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed at an early age with a strong conscience, or what others have referred to as the 'Light of Christ'. When I did what was right, I felt a warm, comforting or happy feeling. When I didn't do what was right, I felt nothing, or felt bad about my actions. When I first read the Book of Mormon, I knew that it was good. I had that warm, comforting feeling that told me that the writings by those ancient prophets were of God. I have since had the witness of the Holy Ghost, many times, that the Book of Mormon is a truthful and important witness of Jesus. My life has been blessed immensely by sharing that witness with my children, and using the truths of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ as a foundation in their upringing.

How I live my faith

God answers my prayers daily. Not always immediately, and not always in the way that I would have dictated, had I been in charge, but luckily I am not. As I look back on challenges, I have seen His blessings in my life so many times, that it gives me strength and faith to move forward with new challenges. With God, nothing is impossible, and we are all equal to the challenges and trials we encounter.
